I promise this is the last post on the topic of the April 2014 Cumulative update for Project Server 2013 (Or the ‘May CU’ as it has become known internally). In case you missed it the full package including the SharePoint patches and the Project Server fixes that were not released with the original April CU was released May 7th (KB 2880484). Sorry for the delay in posting – but the original KB had some confusing references to 2010 and was missing the list of fixes – so wanted to be sure I was pointing you to good information – Cumulative update package for Project Server 2013 (Project server-package): May 7, 2014.
The patch comes in 3 parts and you need to extract all three to the same directory to install – each is around 1.2GB. Executing the ubersrvprj.exe will start the installation. Don’t forget to run the configuration wizard once this completes!
If you are updating to the ‘April’ CU it is VERY IMPORTANT that this is the release you use – or if you have already installed an earlier release that you RE-APPLY this one. The earlier releases did not include all the fixes, but more importantly in certain combinations with SP1 they could leave the database at the SP1 level rather than the updated April CU level. This would mean that the very important stored procedure update to avoid the ‘lost resources’ issue may not be applied. Check your dbo.Versions table in your Project Server database – This patch will update to 15.0.4605.1000. If you see just 15.0.4569.1000 then that is just the SP1 level and you really need to apply this new patch.
This version number is the same as the other April CU releases – to be sure you have this new one see Control Panel, View Installed Updates. This same update will also be listed under Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 (several times):
Not long to wait for the June CU now either, and a reminder that we have a June CU webcast happening on June 24th – http://ignite.office.com/webcasts/support-webcast-service-packs-cumulative-updates.
